Nelofer Pazira, star of the movie Kandahar, returns to
Afghanistan to seek out her childhood friend Dyana, whose
story inspired that film. Landing in Kabul 13 years after her
family left Russian-occupied Afghanistan, Nelofer unravels
her past and the history of her country while searching
for Dyana. The epic journey takes her to Kabul, Kandahar,
and Masir-e-Sharif, where Dyana s uncle last had contact
with her family. Nelofer journeys across a broken land
smashed by war with the Russians, years of anarchy under
the Northern Alliance, the Taliban, and now by America s
war on terror. Incisively weaving Nelofer s personal story
with that of Afghanistan itself, Return To Kandahar shows a
country once again in the grip of warlords.
